Gail stated "The reason Wesley, the reason Marie didn’t want to be examined by Frank is that he-- has … is that your brother has molested Indian girls." (Watson, 45). There will be times in life where it is a good idea to keep quiet about certain things. In this case, it would have been easy for Gail to just keep quiet and never tell Wesley this. Although, Gail is nothing like Wesley and Frank she does not cause harm to the Indian people and she is a woman.
She thought there was no point in staying in school if Wes wasn’t going to go. When Wes Moore grades started dropping, Joy made sure that he did better. Mary Moore enforced no punishments for being a part of drug rings. On the other hand, Joy threatened to send Wes to military school and actually followed throught. Mary Moore was a carefree parent who didn’t enforce rules, while Joy had rules and
But they keep their tongues in leash.” (Page 507) When Antigone says this it shows how she will not say that people are mad at her for breaking the law, she will not give in and say she did something wrong. When Creon is told something and he choses not to believe it he says the other person is wrong and that they do not know what they are saying, this is just like Antigone. “...I have done no wrong, I have not sinned before God. Or if I have, I shall know the truth in death. But if the guilt lies upon Creon who judged me, then, I pray, may his punishment equal my own.” (Page 518) Here, Antigone states that she believes she has done no wrong.
In The Glass Castle, Rex and Rosemary Walls can be categorized as permissive parents. Rex and Rosemary’s parenting style is permissive because they approach their children as more of a friend than a parental figure, they do not discipline their kids, and they have few demands expected from their kids. The Walls parents act more of a friend than a parent to their kids due to their easygoing nature. Rex brushes off Jeanette's complaint regarding Robbie’s inappropriate touching and does not take action as a normal parent should. Rex had the opportunity to punish Robbie for his behavior but decided not to: “I’m sure he just pawed you some, I knew you could handle yourself” (Walls 213).
Given this, being kind and compassionate is not her strong suit. During Tom Robinson’s trial, Atticus keeps on being polite to Mayella. Annoyed, she said to the judge: “[As long] as he keeps on [calling] me ma'am and [saying] Miss Mayella. I don’t [have to] take his sass, I [am not] called upon to take it.” (Pg. 182) Her innocence was taken from her, leaving her to neglect and poverty.
Daisy, despite being completely at fault, allows Gatsby to take the blame, even though she claims to have once loved him. This shows how desperate she is to keep society’s view of her untainted. She wants to remain pure in their eyes, and killing someone with a car would shatter her image. She could not claim it was an accident for it would make her look inattentive, while if she claimed it was not an accident, it would make her look callous, neither of which would benefit her reputation. Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences.
The speaker in “Porphyria's Lover” says, “no pain felt she; I am quite sure she felt no pain.” The speaker is not Porphyria, so he cannot be sure she did not feel anything. On the other hand, the speaker could be thinking about how she feels no pain because he believes if she is willing to “give herself to me forever,” she will ender the pain. An individual’s psychology can affect the growth and the expression of the relationship, like Porphyria’s psychotic lover and the misunderstood
She continues with the plan because she believes that her love for her family overrules the law. Ismene is more timid and obedient than Antigone. When Antigone was attempting to convince Ismene to help her bury their brother, she refused by saying it is too dangerous and that she doesn’t want to suffer the consequences. Ismene speaks her feelings to her sister, “They mean a great deal to me, but I have no strength to break the laws that were made for the public good” (Sophocles). This informs the reader that she doesn’t like to take risks and do ambitious things.
Her argument is not based on evidence or researches, it is based only in her personal experience and examples. The attitude that she keeps is not the attitude of a teacher and so much less of a parent. She looks very immature and it makes her argument ineffective, so her try to convince her audience fail. Excluding students from the audience is inevitable because they are the center of the discussion. However, Sherry leaves them out, she made up her audience by teachers and parents.
Words and phrases have also been used to distinct groups of people. Negative words can have long-lasting consequences that spread far beyond the person who is being bullied. An anonymous once quoted, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me,” but words do hurt. Words hurt adults as well as children. Many times children or teens do remember negative words or remarks, especially from important family members or friends and how those words seriously disturbed their self-esteem throughout life.
I asked myself the same question twenty years ago because I hated grade school. I also asked God, why I was born, and sent to school with a bunch of mean children. Like Zimmer, I recall getting into small fights with other girls. I was not a tormenter, but a victim of bullying. Due to my shy behavior, I easily attracted bullies to abuse me.
